DISABILITY | How You See Me

I have a disability and I'm trying to get over it. would someone just watch or share my campaign? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5QM4KM7VsM0

yeah im sort of disabled as i had mastoiditis which required me to have surgery… well after i woke up i struggled to hear a word finding i was tilting my head towards the speaker and later in the year i found out id be permanently deaf in my right ear this devastated me but i made sure to tell everyone so they'd speak louder, understand why i dont speak louder and understand why i would constantly say pardon or what? well now even my parents get mad if i cant hear them and anyone i spoke to made a joke out of me asking what constantly and to be honest it sucks i kinda wish i was fully deaf so either i get hearing aids or people just recognise how much pain im in or how evil theyre being making fun of a disabled

Alright someone is gonna hate me for this at least be offended but does it matter anyway why isn't more people talking about disabilities than gay lbgf non identifying sex snowflake crap?!?? Seriously this is so wrong!!!!!!! Finally they come out with the bullying movement but then that sh!t ugh OMG. Hell we've been waiting an awful looooong time when will we finally get a break?!???

I have a learning disability. I’m dyslectic and I have trouble spelling and reading. It’s hard because people at my school think I can’t read because they don’t understand what dyslexia is. It makes me not want to tell people and it’s my biggest insecurity.

I love how their confident in themselves and firmly believe that you can be attractive and disabled because being attractive has nothing to do with that so I agree with that too but I also think it's important to note that just because somebody is disabled doesn't mean they are incapable anyone can achieve great things regardless of whether they're in a wheelchair or not. That is something to remember because it's not just about being attractive looks aren't everything.

Time 7:05PM Sat 2/10/18. I know this video was last year I to have a disability. But people in this world needs to realize to make fun of disabled people. There are some famous people who are disabled. Watching this makes me realize I want to work harder on my dreams.

My story begins with me born with Asperger's syndrome and handicap, I've had this condition since I was a 👶 my 👵 raised me in Indiana! I wasn't gonna let anything stop me from reaching my potential in the 🌎 but sometimes I don't usually talk about why I was born this way or how people keep asking me about my 🤚🏿 it doesn't bother me at all, I'm right handed but I can't write or shoot whenever I play 🏀 cause it never insults my intelligence of being a man that I'm today. I'm blessed and I tell God thanks 🙏 for believing in me and never give up my hopes and dreams! I also have trouble stuttering because sometimes I have speaking clearly and autism even it effects me as well, I always say " I have a disability" " Do I have what it takes to achieve my destiny" it something that I can do for myself and for my family too. My message for disabled people who are living with condition: Do your best and live your life like God wants you too and stay focused on your journey to become whatever you want to be in life, stay humble and strong 💪 for your friends and family.

I feel your guys pain because if it wadn't for my mother and my doctor I would of be in a wheel chair and I am still going to go in a wheel chair because I can't walk long distances, what I have is CP (Cerebral Palsy) but it only effects my left side and If I didn't go through 4+ surgeries then I would of been in a wheel chair gor the redt of my life, I would feel not wanted at some points of my life and scared that no one would except me for who I was.

I have adhd n sometimes its hard to act like I wanna and I also have to deal with my ptsd its really hard,

I'm a daughter of a disabled father…who has Cerebral Palsy and walks with crutches. But people stare at us all the time….and sometimes I feel like saying 'take a picture it last longer'..But that doesn't stop my dad from doing the things he loves…And doesn't effect me one bit and,has actually helped me become a better person and to be more thoughtful and courageous!😊

THE DISABLED AND INFRASTRUCTURE

If the president would take my advice he may not need to cut infrastructure. Instead of redistributing the wealth yet again to construction workers, the government needs to increase the Social Security benefits to the totally disabled. This will spark the economy just as redistribution to the blacks did in the 90s. We do not use roads and bridges anywhere near what healthy people use so the high end workers have been living high on the hog on our backs for eons. If anything, cut their salaries and other high end blue and white collar workers, increase our Social Security, and build the infrastructure. We use buses, Access, and people like me just stay off the road. Furthermore, healthy people are waging a new war against us on the road, in our yards, and even in our own homes through road rage, vandalism and mental and physical harassment. Once again I am being forced to eat less food by my family, neighbors, drivers on the street and shoppers when I barely even get out to do my shopping. People need money to be able-bodied enough to protect themselves or hire others to do so.

People do not split the loaf. They must be forced. The healthy have been living high on the hog and now the entire country is expecting us to take another break from food as they have been forcing through the forced use of drugs and alcohol to deal with emotional issues instead of food which helps the brain washers create your beloved shooters. I was ostracized for eating properly since before I was born and I still am. This Elizaschwitz/Econoschwitz program is Hitler, Machiavellian and any other despot you can name.

Your bridges are falling down America because we are your weakest link and you do not care about us. We are the last vestiges of slavery for you and that is what you care for, the freedom to enslave. You put so much pressure on us, a health nut like me can’t eat. If our Guinea Pig job shouldn’t pay then nobody’s job should pay because we are all Guinea Pigs. Every job in America is refined everyday by people like me that care enough to want a life outside of the office. Just because you don’t use those refinements doesn’t mean that you are not a Guinea Pig.

There will never be harmony while construction workers live high on the hog. Even on workman’s comp my brother made at least 25K. The foundations of society, the totally disabled, are oppressed in poverty even with a Social Work degree. The greed will get worse making the infrastructure worse because that is what happens when the greedy know they can take every excuse to raise the stakes on your greed. Every new raise in inflation and every new illness that is created because of our poverty raises the greed and lowers the quality and the percentages of people who will win the next lottery into the lushic and lushy world of the greedy. We are your foundation because we are the lowest level of slavery in this country. Make no mistake about it; we are crumbling.

I didn’t need that much money to start, but, that was all I was forced into by starvation. I had to work because my family didn’t. Yet, I could have been vocationally successful earlier despite the horrible anxiety and depression I have, but, my family, husband, and community would not give me the social support I needed or even protection from abuse. One of the reasons I was ostracized and divorced was because I would not have children in this condition, a pregnancy that would have surely born another disabled slave. At SmithKline Beecham I did not receive enough protection from the abuse by my co-workers, so, I did not last. I tried social work hoping to become a drug and alcohol counselor because I had an intense passion for healing myself and others and, still, could not find the social support I needed. Even at the University of Pittsburgh the emotional bullying was too much to bare, yet, I was the valedictorian, Summa Cum Laude. Just like any other living thing, though, that is abused constantly my nerves could take no more so, now, I am completely disabled from even socializing due to the greed in this country. Thank you America! The disabled community and The Disabled Revolution (Facebook) thank you from the bottom of our hearts! If this feels still feels like a live wire, it should because that is all you give us. There is no catharsis when the abuse never stops. My nerves are proof.

Pay us for our work, please!!!!!

All of these people are awesome, beautiful, and amazing! I love how that lady at the end busted out dancing! She got those awesome moves!

when she said ''and we literally love when we see heads just turn'' <3 I never thought about making head turns could be positive, I just felt like ''oh stop looking'', I will change that from today.

What about mentally disabled?
I have a learning disability, even though its not too bad
I feel strongly that this video sums up disabled people that are all physically disabled

AND NOT ALL PEOPLE IN WHEELCHAIRS ARE PARALYZED!!! I’m in a wheelchair but have use of my legs. My legs only act like assholes when I try to walk.

A lot of times when we find it necessary to use a cane for stability when walking or standing for a long time we feel differently about who we are. Also people see us as easy prey. A lot of us are licensed gun owners but sometimes the gun isn't needed or isn't all that easy to reach. I created Patriot Canes for that reason.
We build our canes with a solid steel lower core that basically turns your innocent walking cane into a baseball bat. It allows you to subdue your attacker so you can reach into your holster before actually being attacked.
All of our walking canes are American Made by American Veterans in Clewiston, Florida.

I was born with glass bones and paper skin. Every morning I break my legs, and every afternoon I break my arms. At night, I lie awake in agony until my heart attacks put me to sleep.

My cousin came home from school one day crying because someone had pushed her from her walker and was beating on her and no one helped her😭 and I cried with her because all she said was “it’s because I’m not normal.” And all I told her was what is normal? She has cerebral palsy and a mild case of Autism. Growing up I never looked at her differently because she always pushed through. I love her and thankfully she is in a great place in a loving environment with our family

Disabilities be it of various diagnosis from Mental to Physical and more be it they are in crutches, canes, wheelchairs, walkers, or scooters have a tough time getting around people with Down Syndrome especially stand out among others.

disability and india handicapped job cail back karo please help kailas kharde mb.9527661830

I was born premature as a baby and I have Retinopathy of prematurity and myopia my right eye has less vision then my left eye and its so frustrating trying to see from far away and seeing small objects I went from being a one pound four ounce baby to a 5"8 28 year old man. I'm very blessed to be here

Thank you for doing this. I used my channel to try to wake people up to "invisible disabilities". I hope what we do helps others…

I think with this ideaolgy, people with disabilities appreciate life more than most able bodied people. I know myself that I complain about the most pathetic things sometimes- I should be greatful for everything I have.

Takes courage to go to a nightclub in a wheelchair, showing up to a meetup in a wheelchair, or going on that first date and being worried the place might not be accessible (even if they say they are on the phone). The toughest part about my disability is not the disability itself but how the rest of the world either reacts to it or makes it impossible for me to do what everyone else does.

I am high functioning autistic and this video was really emotional to me. When I'm out in public, I don't try to hide the fact that I am autistic, I never hide the fact or lie about it. If anyone wants to ask, I tell them. I just find it easier to blend in. So when I tell people that I have a hard time doing things through my day, they look at me and say "You don't look Autistic" "I know you and you could hold down a job, you can do this". No, you don't know me. Yes, I can try to hold down a job but I can bet that I would not be good at it. Get to know me, get to really really know me and how I act at home or with my family and you will see that I am not neurotypical like you think I am.

I was injured in a horrific car accident, I was in a coma and lived in the hospital for six months in intensive care. I worked really hard to be able to go back to school but I needed constant supervision unfortunately. Now I am 26 years old and for the most part I am fully functional but I still have a catastrophic brain injury and I have difficulty with some simple tasks. It really upsets me when people look at me as if somethings wrong ):

Yo Wassup YouTube !! I Started A YouTube channel for people like myself who living with Disability. Where we can come together as a small community to encourage and motivate one another. The channel called “Get Motivated with Raphael”

I agree it would be nice to see other non physical disabilities, but I needed to take the time and thank whoever posted this. See I have trigeminal neuralgia and I'm currently facing a disability hearing. I've been struggling to accept i have a disability…and this video is showing me that being different doesnt have to be a bad thing. I'm still at the start of this journey but i do hope thag one day i can accept me for me and be an inspiration and example to my little bro.

At an early age i knew i was different but don't let my disability define me just part of who i am has a person some people may not understand us all i know is we were put on this planet for a reason

Life's easier if you're Disabled but conventionally attractive, as most of these people prove. For those of us born Disabled and who have misshapen bodies, life is much tougher. I grew up in England at a time when Disabled people were rarely seen and seldom heard. We weren't given permission to dream like non-disabled people are. Many of us are jobless, without relationships and lacking in opportunities.

I like video who inspired me when i didnt know wrong because they told I had lerning disability i needed more creative when I now finish school its teach me how over come my speech alot better now.

My mother is Puerto Rican and she has a learning disability hard for her to learn anything she move to the USA keep in mind it's part of the USA she gets attacked called names just because she don't speak English it's hard for her but she's moving back to Puerto Rico where she can speak Spanish freely. Keep and mind Puerto Rico did choose to be part of America it choose to invaded Puerto Rico who can't accept their first language how sad.

I remember when I was 6 my mother worked in a restaurant and there was this man who was missing his right arm…I was so so scared of him and so ashamed because he was sooo nice to me. Once my brother was born and we found out he was autistic and would always be the age of 4 years old was when I began to really understand disabilities and people with them.

It doesn’t mean that I have a disability.. that’s how I accepted to calling as “different.” I’m deaf, I don’t care if that bother how people looked at me like that, or I didn’t like to call “dumb as person.” That’s hurt me, but most matter is I won’t let people discriminate against people or different people who they are with a good heart. People are asshole, sometimes they don’t understand what mean is disability. Stand up for yourself , then prove them wrong after you can be whatever you want.

It's okay to be different. We are all messes, so you better embrace your difference or you'll be depressed for no reason

Hi have my small brother who have a car accident the 2nd of december 2018 by the grace of god he survived and he was soccer player..now he is disable cannot move his leg his arm..full of hope he decided to start doing music..his video clips is out soon iam so proud.Im french and live in irland he live in france and in France disability is hidden just since few years now we have a show about young disable people but there is a lot things to be done because the show talk.about disable young people.life in hospital and i think most of the actor are not disable in real.life..anyway iam glad that my brother he is stepping in the french word music

Sometimes, we see people occupied the road which is for disabilities. I hope the world is a place where kindness is, instead of stupid.

I just see these people just like everyone else there no different they are all different in they’re own special ways

I’m 14 and I was in Walmart and someone literally said “when are you going to be out of your wheelchair” and I just wanted her to stop talking to me so I said “I don’t know” like an idiot

I love that they have some who has SB ( Spina Bifida ) and is paralyzed because of it because I have SB and I’m paralyzed too. Not all people with SB are paralyzed.

I freakin' love this. Thank you for beautifully depicting in a visual way the fabulousness of people with a disability. Using this as inspiration. Would love to collaborate in the future.

To be honest, I get fed up with seeing and hearing disabled people whining about their illness or trying to tell everyone else to see them a certain way, or a different way.
I have a mainly invisible disability and I couldn't give a toss what people think and I am certainly not going to keep reminding others about it.
Truth is ; if someone has a major physical disfigurement it is impossible NOT to notice it.
Time for people to get real instead on acting like kids.
